More than 30 vehicles were damaged across three suburbs of Bristol last night (April 17) – with a suspect described as a bearded blond man who was wearing a military-style jacket.
Police got the first call about the trail of destruction at around 2am, but despite police patrolling the area looking for the suspect, he could not be found.
Officers began house-to-house inquiries and discovered that more than 30 cars had been damaged across at least seven streets in Montpelier, St Andrews and Ashley Down in Bristol.

Cars were found damaged in Leopold Road, Maurice Road, Sommerville Road, Upper Belmont Road, Rutland Road, Morley Square and Brynland Avenue.
A man spotted in action was described as white, 5ft 8ins tall with blond hair and a beard, and was wearing a military or ‘parka’ style jacket.
Police are now appealing for anyone who has CCTV footage covering the Montpelier or Ashley Down area – even if it isn’t on one of the streets listed.
“If you saw the man responsible or recognise the description, get in touch through www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/contact or call 101, quoting reference 5220084153,” said a police spokesperson.
“If you live in the area please check your vehicles for any fresh damage and report it to police quoting that reference number.
“Also, check any personal CCTV or dashcam and get in touch with officers if you have any footage of the offender,” he added.
